Man, such a small and simple thing and I managed to miss it too :D
Thanks!

@njakobsen

Me too.

@filippovG

the "..., :type => :controller do" was a solution for me!

@pboling

I just had to add :type => :controller after upgrading from rspec-rails 3.0.0.rc1 to 3.0.1 in a Rails 4.1.1 app on Ruby 2.1.2 because get was undefined. Whaat? The file is spec/controllers/home_controller_spec.rb. Adding the explicit :type fixed it.

@microweb10

@pboling that's kink of annoying. There must be a way to not have to add :type => :controller

@matthewrossanderson

Gooood call on the it block
